Is ‘Pasta’ Code for Cocaine?

James Kennedy's "it's not about the pasta moment" with Lala Kent had Vanderpump Rules fans talking in Season 6, not only because of how instantly iconic it was but also because it spurred some speculation over what exactly the SURvers were talking about.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Wed. 9/8c. Stream next day and catch up on past seasons on Peacock.

Now nearly two years later, Tom Sandoval is here to set the record straight on what James really meant by "pasta" in his new book co-written with Ariana Madix, Fancy AF Cocktails. “If you are like me, someone who doesn’t like to put anything up your nose, but you want to be able to hang out with your friends and last, this drink is for you,” Tom wrote while providing a recipe for a drink playfully called I Don't Do Coke, as reported by Us Weekly. “It will give you the energy of ‘pasta,’ but won’t upset your stomach or [sic] I’ve our the jitters like coffee or energy drinks.”

Kristen Doute previously addressed the Vanderpump Rules controversy during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in January 2018, which you can view, above.

The new season of Vanderpump Rules is bound to have us talking when it premieres Tuesday, January 7 at 9/8c. Check out what's to come, below.
